Glad you clicked through but you’ll need to come back on Wednesday 29 June to find out about We Work. Trust us, there’s going to be some amazing stories showing how PlaceShapers up and down the country change people’s lives...
PlaceShapers have stressed the need for affordable homes to house people helped out of homelessness.
PlaceShapers chair Sinéad Butters said: “We are all concerned about the growing levels of homelessness. We welcome any investment that alleviates the misery of those who find themselves sleeping rough. However it cannot be seen in isolation. Once people are able to move on from the ‘second stage accommodation’, there is a desperate need for affordable homes from which they can rebuild their lives.”
In today's Budegt, the Chancellor announced new funding to tackle homelessness:
PlaceShapers built or acquired almost 13,000 new homes across all tenures in 14/15 alone. More than 26,000 new homes are in the pipeline for the next three years.
